I am passionate about delivering optimal outcomes for my clients. My main practice focus is workers’ compensation, workplace health and safety and insurance law. My clients’ needs are uncomplicated – they want excellent and timely results at minimal cost.
I have over 10 years’ experience in personal injury litigation. I am an approved WorkCover panel lawyer and have also acted for self-insurers, national and Queensland based companies and local government in common law claims and appeals to the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission.
My clients operate in various industries including retail, manufacturing, transport, aged care, labour hire, building and construction and personal services.
Communication is the key to my success in delivering superior service and outcomes for my clients. I adopt a “hands on” approach and make it a priority to personally visit a client’s business to fully understand how they operate. This gives me real insight into their systems and procedures which in turn gives me an edge in negotiating outcomes.
I have a strong reputation for resolving uncontentious matters as quickly and cost-effectively as practicable through alternative dispute resolution. However, if a matter cannot resolve without litigation, my clients know that I have the tenacity, drive and experience to help them get the right result at trial.
I have significant experience in personal injury litigation and some of my successes include:
- Schonell v Laspina, Trabucco & Co Pty Ltd  QCA 324
- Kovacic v Local Government WorkCare  QSC 256
- Hamey v The Mac Services Group Pty Ltd & Anor  QDC 137
- Hamey v The Mac Services Group Pty Ltd & Anor  QDC 206
- Caine v Bunnings Group Limited (unreported) QDC 4 September 2012
- Williams v Riviera Marine (Int) Pty Ltd  QDC 306
